Re: Waitress Position

Dear Mr. Abraham:

With my hands-on experience in food service industry, exceptional hospitality acumen and demonstrated customer service expertise, I am ready to contribute to Sandia Restaurant in the role of a Waitress.

As you will note from the enclosed resume, I am very skilled in greeting guests and assisting them with table selection, taking food and beverages orders, communicating the same to kitchen staff/bartenders and returning back to table quickly. Moreover, I have excellent knowledge of beverage handling and serving techniques, good mathematical ability to calculate cash and make change, and able to keep service area clean and organized.

Throughout my career I have maintained the highest customer service standards. At my previous workplace, I effectively maintained sales records and collected payment which reduced discrepancies by 30% and increased revenue by $7000 per month.

I would like to meet with you at your earliest convenience to discuss my candidacy in detail. To follow-up and set up a meeting date and time, I’ll contact your office next week. In the interim, I can be reached at (009) 987-2045.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
